The original forum is back online. You can browse and read it here at the original url: http://talkrational.org.For now, I've left the little send-email icon active. If you want to copy the text of a post, you can click that icon. It will open a PM edit page where you can copy the post with all its original formatting, and then paste it in a thread on this forum. Some of the bbcodes probably won't translate, but it will give you a good start on transferring a post from the old forum to this one.Let me know in this thread if you run into any unexpected problems on the old TR forum.
